For Pain "I have a bad neck. I broke it some 20 years ago. However when the weather changes it hurts badly. So I asked the pharmacist what would be the best topical pain reliever and they told me Aspercream. So I put some on my neck last night, before going to bed. I woke up with a rash and burning on my neck. It's like one of the worst sunburns I've ever had. It worked on my neck pain, but I don't think I can use it anymore,due to the burn I got from it."

For Pain "I applied a small amount on my knees. Within 20 minutes, a rash broke out on both legs with severe itching and burning. I had to go to urgent care where they gave me a steroid injection and script for Prednisone. I'm on day 5 of the script and the rash is finally clearing. Script and Urgent care cost me $90, in addition to the money wasted on Aspercreme!"

For Back Pain "Use on lower back and neck vertebrae 4 times a day. This works well for me and relieves pain quickly."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis "Bought the latest aspercreme w/lidocaine & it did not do anything more to relieve knee pain that the aspercreme without lidocaine. The Australian Cream works better than any thing I have bought The salonpas patches are pretty good too. I would have called, but there is no phone number to call about the product which I found frustrating. Can you suggest a way to contact the company?"

For Pain "I love Aspercreme. It's easy to apply and odourless. My only wish is that it came in a roll on. Sometimes I don't have the strength to rub it in."

For Back Pain "Severe neck and spinal pain (stenosis). My partner massages this into my neck and spine using pressure. This is very comforting. It does not replace pain medication but does help. He has large hands and rubs it in completely; I recommend giving this a try."

For Pain "I worked at Target for a few years. On my feet all the time, and they ached at the end of the day. To get to sleep, I would use a face scrub like Apricot scrub on my feet, then rinse, towel dry, and apply aspercreme. It worked like a charm. I highly recommend this product for the relief of foot pain at the end of a long day's work."
